BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – July 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

BoxyCharm is a full-size beauty and makeup subscription box. They always provide a great value compared the cost of the box. (If you are a makeup addict – I HIGHLY recommend this box!)

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm

The Cost: $21 a month

The Products: 5-6 beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. (At least 4 of those items will be full-sized).

Ships to: US and Canada

Check out all of my BoxyCharm reviews and the Beauty Subscription Box Directory!

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Now, time for the items!

Boxycharm x blinc Electric Eyes Eyeshadow Palette – $45

This palette is AMAZING!!

The shimmery palette like a liquid/powder/cream hybrid! The formula glides on SO smoothly, the finish stays put, and the pigment is incredible. This is my new favorite palette!

bareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo – Value $32

(Subscribers will either receive this powder duo, or bareMinerals Prep Step Broad Spectrum SPF 50.)

This set includes baked translucent powders designed to help diffuse the look of pores and imperfections.

The shade on the left has a matte finish and works as a setting powder. On the right, the Glow shade adds sheer luminosity for highlighting and strobing.

I really like both of these. The matte is perfect to use every day to prevent shine, and the Glow is the ideal kind of highlighter for me = subtle!

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Lock Diary – Value $6

(Subscribers will receive one of six colors – check out all of the shades in our Boxycharm spoilers post.)

I’m a big fan of ColourPop liquid lipsticks! The formula on this liquid lipstick stays put for hours and wears down nicely, the pigment is fantastic, and it isn’t too drying, either.

Winky Lux Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil – Value $12

This brow tool has a pencil on one end, and a spoolie on the other:

The universal color worked well for me, too. (I’ve been going for a full brow look lately, and this color brown let me fill in my brows perfectly.)

Here is swatched beneath the eyeshadow, Glow powder, and ColourPop:

Important to note: those eyeshadow swatches are with just one swipe!!

Project Beauty Spray Set Go – Value $32

Makeup setting sprays are one of those items I’m always happy to use when I have them, but forget to buy when I run out – so this is a win for me. And I’ve sampled some sprays that don’t smell the best – but this one has a light and barely-there scent.

The mist itself isn’t super fine, but it wasn’t an issue either as long as I held it at least 12 inches from my face.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $127! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! This is one of my favorite Boxycharm boxes of all time, too – everything is super usable for me, and I’m just in awe over that palette!

I think Boxycharm is a perfect subscription for people who love makeup. You’re going to get a lot of palettes, highlighters, etc., so it’s great if you want to build your collection and try all the things! (If you only need one highlighter/palette in your makeup arsenal, this might not be the best box for you.)

What do you think of the July 2017 Boxycharm Box? What’s your favorite item?

  1. I got kit #7 with the Blinc palette, Bare Minerals prep step, Ofra illuminizer lotion, Unibrow pencil and Colourpop lippie in Monday (a medium nude color).

    I love the palette and like the prep step, eyebrow pencil and lippie. I’m disappointed that I didn’t get the setting spray. I’m really fair and the Ofra lotion makes my skin look too pink.

    • I also received this box. I’m soooo glad I didn’t get the setting spray. I was not super excited about it. Plus, the Ofra Illuminizer retails for 39.95 so it’s actually more expensive than the setting spray. The value of the box ends up being 134.95!

      • I completely agree with you! I’m super happy I received the Ofra lotion instead of the setting spray, since I rarely use setting sprays. I just tried the lotion and it is gorgeous on! Left my legs with a slight sheen and added immediate warmth color, perfect for summer! It also didn’t have an overpowering scent, which I appreciate. Overall, I’m happy with the lotion in lieu of the setting spray.

      • Retail value doesn’t really matter if you don’t like the product. The setting spray may be lesser in price but still nicer than the overpriced Ofra lotion. Luckily I received the spray. Ofra is in every box so it’s also nice to get new unique brand (and product) to try.

        • Well, whether the setting spray is nicer is in the eyes of the beholder. Someone else was just saying that the setting spray turned out to be “meh”. And a lot of people have posted that the Ofra body luminizer is beautiful.

    • I got this same box. I’m happy I got the ofra. It looks beautiful . And the prep cream is great as well. I have lots of setting sprays so I’m glad I got this box.

  2. Well, my Boxycharm arrived, and it didn’t even include a card. :/ I received 4 items:

    Ofra Body Illuminizer 4oz
    Bare Minerals Prep Step 1.35oz (I’d hoped not to receive that, wanted the powder)
    Colorpop Ultra Matte Lip in Monday
    blinc Electric Eyes Palette

    It just seemed thrown together with whatever they had left, laying around, especially without the card. I’m looking forward to next month’s.

    • You should contact customer service and let them know; I bet they will make it right. I’ve had good luck with their customer service before.

    • You should have received another item, take a pic of what you did get next to the shipping label on your box and email it to customer service

  3. I am happy with my box. I am going to use almost everything. I got the BM lotion, with I wanted, and have tried other lip products from colorpop but not the ultra matte; so I’m excited about that. The eyeshadow palette is beautiful, unfortunately two of the shades in mine came shattered. I already emailed support but I’m not keeping my head up about getting the same palette as a replacement.

    Anyway, if anyone got the setting spray and wants to swap for the Ofra illuminizer I would gladly hand it over!

  4. There are too many variations this month. It is like Boxy knew people wouldn’t cancel to get the Tarte palette next month and some of us got different products.

    I got a Ofra body illuminizer (it has an inner foil seal, btw, for those who are swapping) instead of the setting spray and a Beauty for Real black eyeliner instead of the brow pencil. Not sure if the setting spray with its mister and the brow pencil which everyone seems “ugh” on is better, but it is disappointing when you are expecting the featured box and don’t get it.

    They also seem to have gotten out the featured box to all the reviewers. Boxy, you did a Glossy this month.

    • What was the weight of your box??

      • 0.9 lbs.

      • I got the same box as that commenter, and the weight was 0.9 lb.

    • I completely agree with you! It appears that Boxy sent the featured boxes to all of the reviewers, and sent us ordinary paying customers the variations. It is frustrating and disappointing.

    • I received the same things you did. No setting spray….and no eye brow pencil. I am a little disappointed. I received a prep step lotion from bare minerals…..I am not sure what went on

    • I only got my box today, since I was out of town when it was actually delivered, but I’m a regular customer and got the same box as the one reviewed here! This is my second month of boxy charm, I have one left on my subscription but I think I’ll let it renew. I really like it!

    • its so weird. but ive noticed that they give new subscribing customers the feature box as well, i had my mom subscribe and since she got hers so late i thought she was going to get the different box. but she didnt she got the good box while i got the not so good box.

      • Right?!?! I was just saying the same thing a few days ago!!! It’s great that the newbies got an awesome box but… where’s the loyalty, boxycharm?

      • I am a new subscriber, and I also received the box reviewed. Maybe they want to leave a good impression so the newbies stick around? It’s a good strategy until the loyal customers start to feel burned.

      • Same here. Brand new subscriber and got the box reviewed. Love it! I’m newer to sub boxes in general so I’m still open to trying new products and brands.

  5. I just got my shipping info and it has my box weight listed as 0.7lbs ….I haven’t seen anyone list theirs at that weight, do you think I should be concerned that something is missing?

    • Hi I got my shipping info the same time you did (around 3am) and my box weighs .7 pounds too. That sounds scary lol

    • Same here, just got my shipping info this morning and it says it’s a measly 0.7lbs 😞

      • That weight could change. When I originally got my shipping notice, it said 0.9 lbs. then when it started to actually move in transport, it changed to 1.1 lbs. weird. Maybe yours will to? That seems a little light.

        • That is what I thought. 0.7 sounds super light to me. I do’t even know what I am hoping for in the box at this point, I just hope my eyeshdaow isn’t broken because so, so many of them are and I don’t want them to run out and end up with stupid worthless charms that are worth way less than that actual item.

          • I know exactly how you feel, boxycharm has me so stressed about getting this box. This is supposed to be a fun and exciting subscription, but all it does is have you hate on other subscribers who get what they wanted lol,

    • So my box was supposed to be delivered yesterday, but now tracking says “delivery exception” and that I have to contact the post office for redelivery. Has anyone had this happen before?

      • Yes, I wasn’t home so they didn’t leave it and I had to pick it up at the post office. No big deal, better than having it stolen like my tarte order 🙁

    • Did you get your box yet? I’m eager to find out what I’m getting lol

  6. There’s also an eyeliner you might get instead of the brow pencil, in case anyone wasn’t too happy about the universal pencil 🙂

  7. Received my box tonight. A little disappointed that I did not receive the setting spray (received the Ofra product instead), but I’m pretty excited to try the BM powder duo. I also seem to have the worse luck regarding subscription box lip shades: I received the darkest shade and it looks garish on me. Overall, I’m happy with the box, especially the eyeshadow palette (which arrived un-damaged, thank goodness).
    Weird thing I noticed with my shipping label though: my label read 0.9 lbs until it was processed and then it read 1.1 lbs. I’ve never seen that happen before.

    • I got the shade Beeper which is a lighter nude-ish color. I’m not a fan of the lighter neutral colors, so I listed it on the swap site, lol.

      • I’m the opposite, I like nude colors but they send me the darker shades, I believe mines called Thursday and last month I got the Ofra one in a darker shade than I’d normally wear, I cant even find the name of the color on it. I really wanted the powder duo, not the sunscreen because I don’t have much use for it……does anybody wanna trade? I listed it on the swap site but it’s my 1st time trying to swap so I’m just asking on here as well, thanks!

  8. Has anyone who signed up this month received their box yet? I am so excited to get this in the mail…

    Thanks ladies!

    • Hey! One of my personal friends whom I referred signed up earlier this month as well, and her box still has not shipped yet. I hope you get it soon! 🙂

      • Oh thank you Kelsey! Can’t wait to start this subscription. Happy weekend to you…


        • Hey jenn I signed up on the 5th of this month and I got an email today saying it’ll be here on the 19th, so good luck!

          • Thx Nancy got an email this morning. Pray it’s the BM powder…happy Saturday 😊❤

  9. Dang… I really wanted the sunscreen primer, but I recieved the powder duo. Anyone want to swap?

      • Whoa, bombarded with offers. Thanks, all!

    • YES!!!! I’ve been asking everyone and nobody has replied yet!

    • Meeeeee!

      • Oh nevermind, I can see now I’m a little late lol!

  10. I got my box today and I got the powder and the ofra body illuminizer if anyone would like to trade. I really wanted the spf primer and the setting spray.

    • Meeeeee!

      • Sorry, reply posted twice, under
        2 different comments…..I received the same things as you, thats odd, my phone is lagging really badly right now for some reason, my bad!

    • Oh wait, am I too late? I’d love to find someone to trade, I actually got the primer but really want the powder, have u swapped it yet?

  11. Got mine today. I wish I got Liz’s Colourpop color – I got “Thursday”, and I have too many fuchsia lipsticks already.
    The palette looks all pretty much the same color to me, I’ll be swapping it. I have a lot of gold/brown eyeshadows as it is.
    But glad that I received the bare minerals sunscreen and not the powder.

  12. Does anyone wanna sell their box for july?, I unsubscribed and really li ‘ve this box but can’t get it now 🙁 I’ll buy some ones box if they don’t want it! I resubscribed so I’ll get next months 🙂

    • Hey, not sure why my comments aren’t posting but…

      I am interested in “selling” you this box. I actually have been debating if I should get this box to continue my subscription but your offer solves my problem. I can change the address to ship directly to you so there’s no extra cost to get the box.

      Please contact me at kimberloava at gmail . com

  13. I am soo disappointed with this box sun screen ugh

    • I will trade you. I got the powder.

      • If she doesn’t trade, Julie, I will. I got the sunscreen and wanted the powder.

        Thank you!

        • That works. Are you on the swap site?

          • No, I’ll go there now. I never needed to swap anything before this. Are you on the swap sight?

          • Uh oh, I signed up for the swap site and there’s a wait list. 🙁

        • Okay . My you can email me
          jnb0401 at gmail . com

          • Julie, did you trade? I really wanted the powder! I can trade if you’re up for it.

  14. Did everyone’s eyeshadow come in a box? Mine did not and the cover is marked up from rubbing against the brow thingee in the box. I was going to put it up for swap and I noticed folks listing theirs as “new in box” or “never removed from box”. It doesn’t look this this one in the review came in a box but now I’m curious.
    I received the Ofra illuminizer and the sunscreen. I was going to cancel but then there was a spoiler of the finishing powder so I did not cancel. Then it came out that folks would get that OR the sunscreen. I’m going to give the illuminizer a try.

    • Yes, I believe everyone is supposed to get the palette, definitely contact them!

      • I did receive the palette but it was not in its own box. I’m asking if anyone else received their palette in a box.

        • My palette did not come in a box.

        • I did not. I was also surprised that it didn’t come in some kind of packaging.

          • Me too. I want to put it up for swap but with the scuff marks on it I don’t want anyone to think it’s not new.

    • Oh, please do keep us posted on the illuminizer, I got that too but not sure I wanna keep it or swap it…..I’d appreciate it ☺

  15. Ughhh I got mine today and I got the Bare minerals powder instead of the sunscreen, I really wanted the sunscreen. Plus no setting spray which I wanted, instead I got a body illuminzer that I will never wear. Then the colourpop lippie was a dark matte in notion. I don’t wear matte lips so I have to say this is my least favorite box. So bummed. But I still love boxycharm, just got bad luck this time.

    • Boxy is my fave…by far but I wanted the powder and got the prep step….gonna have to swap! I’m hoping to swap a couple things I received but its always worth it no matter what’s in there when it comes to Boxycharm, I am loving this Blinc palette, can’t wait to try it out!!

    • Michelle- I’ll trade you the powder for the sunscreen. I got the sunscreen and wanted the powder.

    • id love to trade you..i got the sun screen and want the powder

  16. On Boxycharm’s website, it says that the box includes 4-5 full size products a month. For past boxes, they show in March that products were chosen from 12 selections. For April, there were 16 product choices. For May, there were only 6 (the only variation being the powder vs cream highlighter/contour palette) and for June, there were only 6 (the only variation being the pink Luxie brush vs a similiarly sized and shaped black brush). They don’t yet list the products for the July box but there were clearly more variations in July than May or June. Most of the time, I have received the products in the big picture posted for the month, which appears to be a base box, but I have received variations from time to time. It looks like everyone this month will get the eyeshadow palette, one of the Colourpop matte lipcolors, one of the Bare Minerals products, and the rest can be varied. I think I will be good with any of them. I ‘m most excited for the palette. I do wish they could ship more quickly. My box sat for a week after its label was created and it’s not expected until next Tuesday. I’m already thinking about August by now.

  17. Got mine today and got the ofra illuminizer instead of the setting spray

    • Me too, I’m so bummed ☹️ This month is just ok nothing fantastic OHHHHHHH I got the Bare Minerals powders which are amazing!!!

  18. It’s always a joy to be excited about a box and get instant disappointment when you open it.

    Don’t use brow pencils so I knew I wouldn’t like or want that product.

    Color pop….got Monday…don’t like this time nor last time when I received same color in a box…who gave two of them in the past??

    Fine with the Bare Minerals prep but was hoping for the powder set

    Very disappointed to get the Ofra body illuminize….why was this never shown?

    Swapping three out of five…..makes me sad

    • I got the same box. I have the lipstick in the same color that I already have. And I didn’t want body luminizer … never use it. And I am not going to use the brow pencil either. How do I swap things?

    • Ugh, you are scaring me! I will never use the sunscreen nor the ofra thing. I really hope I’m not getting them. This month started out so good then they had to kill it.

      • The sunscreen was one of the main spoilers from the beginning, and is a good product.

    • It was Glossybox in May that sent two Colourpop lipsticks. At first I was excited to see them in the spoilers, but then both colors I received I had to swap. 🙁 Wasn’t willing to use either one.

      • Same for me this time around, actually – so many Colourpop colors, but again I got a color I don’t want. Oh well.

  19. I got the powder and the setting spray!!! That was what I wanted the most. The eyeshadow palette is beautiful although I would enjoy a cool tone palette too. The brow pencil is not exciting and will likely be an item in one of my gift boxes. It’s no reflection on the pencil, I just have so many brow products that I will NEVER run out. But unfortunately for me this awesome box ended on a disappointing note. I was looking forward to trying the ColourPop lippy. I have never used them and wanted to see if it was as great as the hype. I received a matte shade which was pretty much in the shade I NEVER wish to receive. I am cursed by the Lipstick Gods to only receive reddish orange colors. I can do a true cool tone red, but never anything with an orange or an orange undertone. And that is always what I get pretty much across the board. Maybe I need to offer up a sacrifice to the Lipstick Gods. 🙄 Or I would be willing to trade (diane14cats at yahoo dot com) if someone actually prefers these colors. If not, another item for the gift boxes.

  20. Got my box today, 0.9.
    Received powder and illuminizer…
    Disappointed not getting the spray since I would be happy with either BM products anyway… It’s the spray that I really wanna try 😞
    Also, I got ultra matte lip in color notion…
    Seems like a super dark color that I won’t dare to try…
    Bit bummed…

  21. Can anyone tell me if I sign up will I get the July Box as my first box?

    • As long as you sign up before the end of July, you should get the July box as your first.
      FYI– the August box is going to have a Tarte palette! ❤️

  22. My box was .9 and I got the sunscreen and the ofra. Pretty bummed because I REALLY wanted the powder (and I would have loved the spray but that’s not as big as a let down). 🙁 very disappointed.

    • At least we knew the Bare Minerals primer was an option. I wAnted the powder as well but I’m ok with the primer. Unless I wasn’t paying attention I don’t recall ever hearing of the Illuminizer which I got as well and wAnted the spray. On the swAps it went.

    • Same here. I love setting sprays and was really looking forward to that, but I got the Ofra lotion. I’m on sunscreen overload and really wanted the setting powders, but didn’t. My colorpop color was this terrible purple color to boot…. first time I’ve ever been really disappointed with Boxycharm.

    • Anyone who got the Ofra AND the BM sunscreen primer – I will gladly swap the setting spray & BM powder!!

      vmarias at usc (dot) edu

  23. These eye shadows look pretty, but I have no idea which colors to use together and which colors go where (i.e lid, outer corner, etc.) Any advice? Thanks!!

  24. They finally got new products for the charms but the matte lipstick is sold out already!! If you guys wanna use your charms there’s like 2 new items, mascara and eyelid highlighter meh better than before

    • Ive never used the charms before can you tell me how too? I have 800 charms but when I go to the charm store everything has a cash price so not sure if Im doing something wrong or not.

      • Tonia,

        100 charms= $1, so right now you have $8 to spend at the charm store 🙂

  25. Boxycharm manages to kill it for me each month. I love this box! I didn’t get the setting spray, but I did get the bareminerals invisible light palette that I was hoping for as well as a body illuminizor from Ofra. I love highlighters/glittery things and I trust Ofra after trying their featured highlight from a few months back, so I’m excited to try this out too! Even the colorpop color was spot on for me– I got “speed dial’, and my favorite colors to wear are red/orange tones. Thanks Boxy!

    • What did you get instead of the spray?

      • an Ofra body illuminizor!

  26. How can I find shipping information? I signed up on the third of this month but I don’t see anything about orders/shipping/etc on the account. I should be getting July, they already charged me.

    Their website is incredibly difficult to use, all it does is try to get me to sign up, even though I’ve already done that.

    • Signed up on the 5th. I contacted them today asking when my box will be shipped and they sent me a generic “5-10 days after payment is received” response. Yours should definitely be shipping today or tomorrow? Keep us updated. I hope they didn’t open the waitlist and get overflooded with new subscribers, not having enough boxes for us.

      (And I agree, website keeps trying to get me to sign up too even though I have!!)

    • The website doesn’t actually do shipping. Once your box ships you will get an email with your tracking number. The boxes also take 5-10 business days, so if payment was taken on the 2nd, 10 business days would be this coming Monday. Also if they have taken your money, you will definitely be getting a July box! The boxes just ship in batches, so sometimes it takes a little while. Hope this helps!

  27. I really like this month’s box even though I wish I had gotten the setting spray instead of the body illuminizer. I received the Colourpop shade in Speed Dial which I already own but it’s wearable whereas colors like Monday are way too light for my skintone.

    Tip: Boxycharm DOES have a beauty profile. It can be challenging to find sometimes but I usually see it on the homepage when I first log in from my cell phone. It asks for familiarity with subscription boxes, number of subscriptions, my birthday, skintone, hair color, eye color, favorite kinds of products, etc. I’m not sure how easily it saves because it comes right back up after you fill it out but it’s worth trying. I’ve been able to get usable items. Hope this helps.

    • I’ve seen other people comment on a “new” profile but I’ve never been able to find it no matter how I login (phone or laptop). It’s never popped up and I feel like I’ve searched the entire site after logging in and have never been able to find it….I’m starting to feel like it’s the Boxycharm Snuffleupagus.

      • I work on website optimization for a huge tech company and I just want to yell at boxycharm and tell them that they have one of the worst functioning sites I’ve ever seen.

        • Please do lol

      • I find it tends to be on the same page as the giveaways!

      • I hope I get the powder, but will be happy with the sunscreen. Pretty neutral on the setting spray vs ofra. Only thing I really don’t want is an orangy or brownish lip color.

  28. I caved. I re-subbed. I really wanted June’s but was able to resist. Between this month and August’s spoiler, I couldn’t resist again.
    I am really hoping for the Bare Minerals powder and not the sunscreen but maybe I can swap if I don’t…
    I hope September is a bust. Then I can cancel again:)

  29. where is the highlighter and ofra product peopke are talking about?! ive only been with boxy three months and thought the only variety was between the powder and sunscreen….also i read they opened the wait list (i was on it almost 7 months and just got off it three months ago)..i sure hope they didnt open the list and too many signed up 🙁 im hoping for the powder and setting spray, my box weighs .09 and will be here the happy thoughts ..hahaha…just linda curious how boxy works with varying products since ive read some say they will run out of items and then start throwing in other items and not say anything. ..

    • I could be wrong (since I rely on MSA to gather spoilers for me and don’t follow Boxycharm on social media or anything) but I believe the only “confirmed” spoilers were for one of the 2 Bare Minerals products, the eyeshadow palette and a Colourpop lipstick in one of the colors shown in a spoiler photo. I totally get box envy…I have it most months since I usually get the variation I DON’T want…but if Boxycharm never said what the other items were, it’s not like they changed anything and just kept it a secret necessarily. From my experience they often vary a few items in the box and the color of any lip product definitely varies.

      • I didn’t get the setting spray, I got a body highlite, and I still have that illunimator from 3boxes ago…can’t even use the brushes or eyeshadow pallet from the real her….I’ve been subed for 3 months and have not used anything, just have it unopened in a box in my closet, but this month I wanted the setting spray and powder set and got neither. now I’ve got nothing I can use in 3 months of this sub and it made me so sad and let down…I sleep during the day and don’t go outside in daylight hours….I’m hoping I can find someone to swap my lotion for powder for….I’m not sure how to use the swap site, as it says people want multi swaps,but don’t want makeup or skin care or certain values or stuff, some have makeup, UT only want jewelry (which I don’t have) so I was hoping I could do an easy swap for the powder here…..if not I think I will buy the powder to try…I have 15 plus subs aND thought boxy would be a good one, and it’s just not came through for me with things I can use..

    • If you look on Boxy’s website, they usually have a base box and lots of variations. They may say everyone will get this product but these products may also be included, and lots of different products are shown. But in several months, I only got a variation from the alternates a couple of times.

    • Have you received your box yet? What did you receive? Mine says .9 and delivers on 15th too, maybe we got some from the same batch or something! Except my postman always delivers until like 6 😢

  30. I told myself I wasn’t going to buy this box, but now I don’t know if I can resist! I would really want the sunscreen, and from the comments I think if I got the powder it would be easy to trade. I do not like that there’s another variation not mentioned in the review, but I think that’s actually happened before because Boxycharm will run out of one item and just start subbing in a different item without telling anyone.

    • If I get sunscreen and you get powder, I would love to swap with you!
      I just re-subbed yesterday so I may not know for a while…

      • Yeah, I may try to hold out a bit before resubbing, but I will let you know what I get! Thanks Melody!

  31. Sooo I watch a lot of Youtubers unboxing. A lot put the weight of their boxes. 2 of them so far had a .9 weight and had the Bareminerals powder pallet and setting spray. My box is .9 will be here on Monday!! So fingers crossed I got the setting powder and setting spray.

    • Same here!!! 🤞🤞 Fingers crpssed fornthe powder!

  32. Boxycharm shipping blows this month. My tracking has not updated since 7/5. I’m hoping for the powder and setting spray. I’m going to be pretty ticked if I get that ofra product.

    • Everyones boxes should have shipped today. They normally ship everyone who pays on the 1st at the same time.

      • I pay on the first and my box was shipped on the 9th, slated to be delivered the 19th.

  33. Why is there even an Ofra product? Did they run out of one of the spoiler items because they lifted the waitlist and then had to call up Ofra and asked them if they have any overstock to deal with the overflow for July?

  34. My box says .9 lbs and I’m
    so hoping for the sunscreen! I live in Florida right near the beaches. I’m so confused. Some people are saying the heavier boxes are the ones with the sunscreen but then I saw where some people received the powder in the heavier boxes. Can someone please fill me in. I’m so impatient!

    • Not sure if it clears anything up since it’s just one box but mine was 0.9 and had the powder and spray.

      • You give me hope!

      • Yes, you gave me hope!

      • That’s what mine is so I hope I get the same as you

      • Mine was .9 but had the sunscreen and the Ofra illuminizer

        • Right…I saw other comments like that too. I think weights are all over the place and not a reliable gauge this time. Just gotta wait for the surprise! LOL.

    • I’ll trade you if you get the powder. I got the sunscreen but really wanted the powder. Let me know!

  35. That eye shadow palette doesn’t look nearly as garish in Liz’s review than in the GB spoilers! It’s far more moderate than I was expecting. I think it’s the magenta shade that’s throwing me off.

    Alas, I’ve already committed to giving it to my MUA cousin. (He texted me this morning that he made money again with the previous palette I gifted him. I’m so happy to contribute to his good fortune.)

    According to their IG, boxes are shipped 5-10 business days after payment, but I haven’t received a confirmation email yet 🙁


  37. I hope I don’t receive the Ofra, it’s not something I would use. Based on my package weight, though, it seems like I will be receiving the sunscreen primer, which is what I wanted. I have too many powders as it is.

    • If you get powder and I get primer, I will swap you.

    • What is your box weight?

  38. I love looking at spoilers and reviews and don’t love it at the same time. I always end up with box envy. I want the powder sooo bad but never seem to get what I want and will use. 😦 Still a great value and great items. I should not look.

  39. I’m so excited to get my box on Saturday.Ill be sad if I don’t get the same box as Liz.Also kind of bummed that there are two different things in boxes instead of one,and that it seams not only do you get one sad product but two .It seems it would’ve been better to spread the happiness.That said I still love my Boxycharm but if it becomes a routine like it did with Glossybox and I always get the short end of the stick ,I’ll be cancelling and looking for my next pot of gold😍

    • Hi I subbed on the 5th as well. Tell me when you get your shipping label or when they’ll ship it. I also have a big big feeling in gonna get the sunscreen and the lotion! Omg that will be a nightmareee lol I was really looking forward for the setting spray, this is horrible news 🙁

      • I got my shipping info last Saturday

      • Same I subscribed on the 5th and I haven’t got my shipping label yet either but I don’t have high hopes for getting the box with the powder and setting spray which is what I want

        • Ugh mine is 0.9 too. I’m a bit disappointed too that it seems like I wont get the powder and setting spray either.

          What is the ofra product? I don’t see a mention of it of it as and either/or option in the review.

          • It’s a tube of body highlighter. I got it.

          • Mine was 0.9 with powder and spray…

      • They billed me on July 1st. Sent me a shipping notice last Wednesday the 5th but it just started tracking today. It says I will receive the box on Saturday the 22nd. 21 days from start to finish. A bit ridiculous but that seems to be the way many of these subs work lately.

        • Wow the 21st!!!! That’s crazy! I imagine mine would come in August. 😅😅 I really hope they don’t run out of the powder or setting spray!

  40. This is my first month so I am guessing, someday soon, I will get an email telling me my tracking number. (I purchased it on the 5th). I didn’t realize there were so many variations. Because my age, other beauty boxes ALWAYS send me skin care as opposed to make up so , if BoxyCharm sticks to the trend, I’ll be getting the primer and lotion instead of what I really want which is the powder and setting spray. I think I am going to see if there’s a way I can tell them I’m a 30 year old beauty blogger, lol

    • If you don’t want products that you think are based on your age – change your age. I’m not sure why you haven’t already.

      • I thought there was only one iten with a variation other than color. I honestly didn’t realize this may be a problem with Boxy Charm. I did change my age, but I am not sure if the information changed on my profile since Boxy Charm doesn’t really HAVE a beauty profile

    • If you get the primer and lotion and I get the powder and setting spray- I will happily trade lol!

      • Oh coranne!!! Trade with me please lol I have the biggest feeling I’m getting the lotion and sunscreen

      • I will totally take you up on that If I get it!!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    • I always used to put that I was 10 years younger than I am, but now that I’m getting older, I’ve been saying I’m 20 years younger! For the reason you stated – I want to receive trendy makeup, not just skin care.

      • Exactly! I have my skin care routine down, tyvm, and what I really want is make up. Sephora was just ridiculous so i didn’t shed a tear dropping them. Ipsy has been great, Birchbox became all about skin and hair care, too. I don’t mind an item thrown in every once in awhile, but it is downright insulting to assume because I’m over 40 that I don’t want/need make up, lol

  41. Would someone with the screen and ofra please tell me what their box weight was.
    Mine is .9. I’ll be sad if that’s my box. I so want the one in the review.
    Thank you

    • Mine is .9 too. I really wanted the highlighter and setting spray in this review. I would be so sad too. My box arrives on Saturday.

    • Mine was .9 and I received the Ofra and sunscreen.

      • Oh man… I’m 0.9 too…
        So sad…
        Didn’t realize there’s a variant on the setting spray as well…
        I was so excited at first when I saw the review… Sigh 😞

      • Mine is 1.1 I’m really hoping for the powder 🤞🏻

      • Lol. Mine was 0.9 and got powder and spray. Doesn’t seem to be an accurate clue.

  42. I’m so excited I lucked out this month. Got this exact box with an matte lippy in Beeper which turns out to be a rare more subtle Colourpop shade (I can’t do super bright without looking clownish). Got all my wishes for once! Lol.

  43. I really want the powder and setting spray. I’m getting married in 10 days and those would be awesome.

    • My sister is getting married on the 22nd as well! Congrats 🙂

    • congratulations!!!!!

  44. I received the Ofra body illuminzer instead of the setting spray, and the Bare Minerals sunscreen instead of the powder, disappointed!

    • I actually prefer that Ofra cream over makeup setting spray! How fun is it for Summer ! And since I already bought the powder at Sephora when it first came out so I hope I get the sun block instead.

      • I was also excited for the ofra illuminizer bc i dont own anything like that, i have a million and one setting sprays

      • Jenny, I got the sunscreen, do you want to trade?

  45. Not everyone will get the setting spray, there is also the Ofra illuminizer body cream that some are getting and have posted on instagram.

  46. Ugh i got the items I didn’t want. The sunscreen, and some ofra body lotion. I wanted this exact box so bad

    • I am hoping for liz’s box, too. Do you happen to know how much your box weighed? Thank you

  47. I’m excited for the eyeshadow palette. It is calling my name. 🤗

  48. So the card says ultra matte but you got an ultra satin, I wanna try a satin! What was the weight? I see some getting ofra instead of the spray and I’m thinking Jose are the lighter boxes? Mine still hasn’t updated tracking yet boooo.

    • Nope, Jose ain’t in the box. Stupid autocorrect. 😒

      • This comment cracked me up! just imagine the new tag line: 4-5 full size items AND a man in every box! 😂

        • OMG the box would sell out in SECONDS!! LOL!!

        • Sign me up for TWO!

        • I would get the crappy variation, with my luck. 😒

        • I would get the bad variation, of course. 😒

          • Then you could arrange a swap!

        • bwhahaha..depemds on what kinda man….hahaha

    • I hope I get anything but a matte! The colour Liz got would be perfect for me.

  49. Liz Thank you for the review! I’m super excited for this box! Did you try the shadow with an eye primer, and did you try them “wet” (with setting spray or fix+) or dry?? Just curious?? And I’m addicted to MSA now, I’ve told my ENTIRE Mom’s Club (and a few Dad’s who didn’t have a clue…but God bless them they listened if they had daughter’s) about your site!! Ty ty ty!!

  50. Awesome! I’m so happy I decided to buy an extra box this month.
